From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    "on the wall," which the Shunammite prepared for the prophet
    Elisha (2 Kings 4:10), was an upper chamber over the porch
    through the hall toward the street. This was the "guest chamber"
    where entertainments were prepared (Mark 14:14). There were also
    "chambers within chambers" (1 Kings 22:25; 2 Kings 9:2). To
    enter into a chamber is used metaphorically of prayer and
    communion with God (Isa. 26:20). The "chambers of the south"
    (Job 9:9) are probably the constelations of the southern
    hemisphere. The "chambers of imagery", i.e., chambers painted
    with images, as used by Ezekiel (8:12), is an expression
    denoting the vision the prophet had of the abominations
    practised by the Jews in Jerusalem.
